    As the title saysI am getting an error message showing USB device not recognised as in the image below.All I have connected is a cheapo USB keyboard and USB mouse. Both are working perfectly so I am a bit bemused.

    OS is Windows 7 Ultimate

    These "devices" are typically called HID - compliant (human interface device) and as such, in my experience, have some sort of drivers.

    There are limitations to the HID protocol, but most operating systems will recognize standard USB HID devices, such as keyboards and mice, without needing a specialized driver. When installed, a message saying that "A "HID-compliant device" has been recognized," generally appears on screen.

    We are, however, talking about a Computer here, so, I would be looking for the site that may have the "drivers" you may need.

    Try Windows update. :)

    My greatest luck when there's a USB hub or other not recognized is a chipset driver. Good luck though! It's always a crapshoot with that crafty device manager. He's usually the end guy when trying to set up a computer perfectly.

    As my previous post has stated, problem solved. The card was neither faulty nor damaged. I was down to user error. I had not seated the card properly :thumb:
